need help, I just want to merge 3D shapes (e.g cubes and shit) into one.
Also Im not talking about 2 shapes only, im talking about like ten.
I am using Cinema 4D, but I also can get blender
Can anyone help???? :((((
if you dont have many polygons and you're working with editable objects, then you can
>put the objects together how you want them
>turn on snapping mode
>use the knife tool to make cuts where the objects join
>line up the vertices of both objects
>choose both objects and use the connect objects + delete command.
>choose the object and use the optimize command to merge the vertices together
In Blender, you can try either the Boolean modifier or the Intersect function.
-Objects have to be watertight
-fucks with your topology, you always have to clean up
-Doesn't fuck with your tolopogy that much since it just cuts the meshes without changing anything else
-Still requires cleanup work because now it's your job to remove the excess geometry.
